Gateway® EC18 Series Memory Upgrade

How can memory up-gradation increases the system performance?


Gateway® EC18 series is an advanced technology netbook computer. With these laptops you can view the multimedia images on a widescreen. The operating system in this series is Windows® 7 Home Premium. This series also offers 8 hours long battery life with the 6-cell lithium ion battery. Two versions are introduced from Gateway® EC18; they are Gateway® EC1814u and Gateway® EC1815u. These two series feature enhancements such as energy efficiency and extended battery life. The advanced features are enabled with the high capacity of Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor. You could do multitasking with 4GB memory capacity. When you want to increase the performance of your system you need memory up-gradation. The more the memory of a system, more free space would be available for you to store more data. The computer also has virtual memory space for temporary storage of data. If enough physical memory is available, then the virtual memory data will move in the physical memory space. If ample virtual memory space is available, then you could avoid the data crash. However, it is essential to check the maximum memory capacity of the system before up-gradation. The system only holds a fixed amount of memory space. Rather than increase the system performance, over memory capacity will only deliver negative effects.


The memory up-gradation increases the system performance in the following ways :




  • Increases system speed

  • Help to install advanced software

  • Multitasking capacity

  • Allow up-gradations



Increases system speed



The most important benefit of memory up-gradation is the increase of system speed. When the computer does a lot of work, the speed will automatically decrease. Some programs might crash completely. If you upgrade the memory you can solve this problem.



Help to install advanced software



When the computer memory is low, you cannot add software with high capacity. For high power graphics card and other entertainment software need more memory. If more memory is available, you can get optimum output from your system.



Multitasking capacity


Users depend on their computer system for multitasking. This is an advantage that most users would like to utilize. If enough memory space is not available multitasking would become difficult. This in turn would affect the routine work of the user. Increased memory will ensure effective multitasking.


Allow up-gradations

Allow up-gradations You might know that some systems cause incompatibility issues with operating system up-gradation. This is due to insufficient memory in that system. For an operating system like Windows® 7, the needed memory capacity is 4 GB. Only more memory could allow the up-gradation to these types of operating systems.
